I have decreased kidney function. I require anti-inflammatory RX strength drugs. Which is better choice for my kidneys? NSAIDS or Corticosteroids?
Loaded...: You need to discuss your current medication regimen with a Nephrologist (kidney specialist) or qualified Internist or Family Physician.

I don't think I would recommend any intervention (NSAID, Corticosteroid) until your medical history is fully taken into account. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If aspirin is anti-inflammatory, why doesn't it lower CRP blood levels? Or does it? What about other NSAIDS? Thx
One or the other: It`s unnecessary and not advisable. Oral NASAIDS get into most tissues-local sprays are local but with some small systemic absorption. Don`t do both. ...Read more

No free lunch: There's no such thing as a free lunch in medicine. In other words, for any desired benefit from drug or surgery, there's always potential risk but it's not a guarantee of side effect either. OTOH, dietary supplements aren't required to warn you & thus tend to hype & mislead. Studies suggest benefit from turmeric, green tea, ginger, rosemary, cat's claw, devil's claw & willow bark (aspirin). Check ...Read more

Hi I have a hernia an Lower back pain iam on a muscle relaxer an an anti inflammatory but it doesn't help with my pain one bit ,?
Suggestions: There are some things you can do to improve your discomfort while you heal. Try the anti-inflammatory naprosyn (naproxen) if you're not taking it already since it's long-acting). I suggest also increasing your water intake a lot (improves blood flow to spasmed tissue), use a microwaveable heat sock to low back several times a day and avoid stretching, as that typically just recreates the mechanism of injury. ...Read more
